Apply for 'Power Shift' - campaign training with People & Planet!

Get subsidised by SOAS SU to go to POWER SHIFT!

3-7 July 2019 at Sevenoaks in Surrey!

'Power Shift is a 5 day training event for students all around UK and Ireland. Students will gain a plethora of skills to help them take action on the issues they care about with workshops covering: Media skills, organising and promoting events, campaign strategy, non-violent direct action, lobbying, movement building on campus and more! At Power Shift, students will have the opportunity to learn from inspiring and experienced activists from across the globe on how we can build a movement that looks to create a power shift from a politics of division to a politics of solidarity, and that fights back against xenophobia, climate injustice and worker rights abuses

The right has gained considerable power over the last few years, and we’re running out of time to shift away from rule by elite power, towards justice. Join us this Summer to help create a power shift from a politics of division and persecution to a politics of solidarity.

Email the SU at to apply by May 5th - it's first come, first served. SOAS Students' Union  will either partially or fully subsidize tickets depending on interest.

Quote from a SOAS student who went last year, subsidised by SOAS SU: 'Thank you so much for making the power shift experience possible for me. It was a really lovely few days, I met some amazing people and learnt some really valuable skills..I think it would be super useful for any person hope there's a SOAS crew there next year.'
